I think this is a really tough image from a compositional standpoint. I don't like where the road runs pretty much right through the centre of the frame: at the left hand-side of the image. I generally don't like to see linear features running through the centre of a composition. But, I think the road on the right-hand side of the image looks good. It is a tough one.
I think the image is cropped too tightly. I'd like to see more of the sky above the mountain. I'd also like to see all of the two rocks that are cut off on the sides of the frame. Not knowing what falls outside the frame, that may have left you with more cropped rocks. If you haven't cropped this image, I think you needed to step back a few feet.
I definitely prefer the colour version of the image. If you're using Photoshop, I'd like to see the "Clarity" slider bumped up a bit. I'd try 25 to start. A little fiddling with contrast and the histogram might improve things a bit.
You have image editing turned on, so I took a stab at it (I'm not very experienced with Photoshop, so please keep that in mind). I cloned out a couple of blobs in the sky, too.

That's a little closer to what I'd personally like to see, but it isn't 100%. I'm getting a bit lost in the midtones.
